Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Maine flexes its (apple) core values
Portland Press Herald - 9/14/2011.
By Meredith Goad – Not so long ago, an apple was just an apple. We went apple picking in the fall, made our pies, and called it good until next year. In recent years, however, the public's apple IQ has soared. Go to the farmers market – even the grocery store – and varieties are labeled so that you know more about your choices. We also know more about rarer heirloom varieties, thanks in large part to Maine's own John Bunker of Palermo, the man dubbed the "apple whisperer" by The Atlantic magazine.
Antibiotic resistance and the case for organic poultry and meat
The Atlantic - 9/14/2011.
By Neil Wagner – A recent study from the Maryland School of Public Health has found a simple way to help overcome the health problems caused by antibiotic resistance: stop adding antibiotics to animal feed. The study found that when poultry and beef are produced without these antibiotics, bacterial resistance quickly declines. Feeding antibiotics to livestock creates an ever-increasing number of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, including many that cause disease in humans.
41% of food insecure families not getting help
Casaubon’s Book - 9/14/2011.
By Sharon Astyk – The USDA indicates that in 2010 there were above 17 million households in the US (out of about 115 million households total) that were food insecure, and had trouble getting enough food on a regular basis. Only 59% of those households, however, received Food Stamps, WIC or School lunches, the three largest US food subsidy programs that make up the bulk of US nutritional supplementation programs. Which means that nearly half of all households were either receiving no support despite food insecurity, or relying on food pantries, soup kitchens and other resources.
Roundup weed killer is showing up in air and water
Grist - 9/13/2011.
By Jess Zimmerman – Hey, what's even better than weed killer being sprayed on crops you eventually eat? How about if it then ends up in air, water, and even rain? AWESOME. I SEE NO POSSIBLE DOWN SIDE TO THIS PLAN. Seriously, this is pretty alarming news: Researchers from the U.S. Geological Survey have detected the active ingredient of Roundup, a chemical called glyphosate, in waterways, air, and rain. On the one hand: Those raindrops have no weeds in them, by God. On the other hand: Everything else about this.
